Astros re-signed RHP Lance Pendleton to a minor league contract.
Pendleton failed to make the Opening Day roster after being selected by the Astros in the Rule 5 draft last offseason, but he wound up back in the organization after being claimed off waivers in September. The 28-year-old will receive a spring training invite as part of the deal and will compete for a spot in the bullpen.

Astros claimed RHP Lance Pendleton off waivers from the Yankees.
Pendleton was a Rule 5 pick of the Astros but failed to make the Opening Day roster and was sent back to the Yankees before the season began.

Pendleton held a 3.21 ERA but 8/10 K/BB ratio over 14 innings for the Yanks this year and a 3.11 ERA and 45/24 K/BB ratio over 66 2/3 frames with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
